CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) -- Wisconsin is playing for the WNIT title tomorrow, but the Badgers will face a hostile crowd rooting for the tournament's biggest underdog.

The Wyoming Cowgirls weren't ranked all season, but they won all five tournament games and are one victory away from the school's first title.

A capacity crowd is expected in Cheyenne for the game - 15,000 people, nearly 2000 people more than the school's entire enrollment.

The Cowgirls beat Kansas State by 10 in triple overtime Wednesday.

But Wisconsin coach Lisa Stone says her Badgers are confident, even with such a large crowd expected in their opponents' corner.

he Badgers are led by Jolene Anderson, who averaged 20 points a game this season, and Janese Banks, who averages 15 points a game.
